Coli update: You can now safely eat romaine again

Coli update: You can now safely eat romaine again

The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings. Iowa, Nebraska, and OR have now joined the list of states reporting E. coli cases linked to romaine lettuce. On Wednesday, May 15, 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it's unlikely that anyone now has edible romaine lettuce that's contaminated with the toxic strain of E. coli bacteria sickening people nationwide since March. "Once it was confirmed that the romaine we serve did not come from Yuma, Arizona, we deemed it to be safe for consumption".

The Centers for Disease Control said illness reports are still coming in.

The CDC said Wednesday that the total number of people sickened by a strain of E. coli is now 172 across 32 states.

"CDC is updating its advice to consumers". Now, the CDC is warning consumers not to buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it's not from the Yuma, Arizona area. People who got sick range from 1 to 88 years, with a median age of 29.

The CDC said 20 people had developed a severe effect of E. coli infection called hemolytic uremic syndrome. As of May 15, the CDC was reporting three people were ill from the outbreak in Colorado.

Health officials say there is a lag time of two to three weeks between when someone falls ill and when it's reported to the CDC.

The CDC estimates that foodborne illnesses affect 47.8 million people in the US every year, putting 127,000 into the hospital and killing more than 3,000.
